I, too, am still confused as to who Jim is.

Here's a fun time waster. You can just google a celebrity's name and "net worth" and you get a figure from some site called, I think, Celebrity Net Worth.

Bill's the poor boy in the gang. Here's how they line up:

Bob: 30 mil (same as George Bush, supposedly)
Mickey: 30 mil
Phil: 35 mil (same as Kate Winslet)
Jerry's estate: 40 mil (same as Meryl Streep)
Robert Hunter: apparently not a celebrity

Now, how about this:

Trey Anastasio: 75 mil

So Trey beats ...

Colbert: 45 mil
Bill O'Reilly: 50 mil
Michael Moore: 56 mil

And some folks down in the po' house:

Alison Krauss: 16 mil
Joan Baez: 14 mil
Pete Seeger: 4 mil

But does not beat ...

Bob Dylan: 80 mil
Jon Stewart: 80 mil
Glenn Beck: 85 mil
Justin Bieber: 112 mil
Eminem: 120 mil
50 Cent: 250 mil
Mick Jagger: 306 mil

And then you have the winner, among those I just spent some dumbly fun time looking up .......

Rush Limbaugh: 350 mil

Paul McCartney is the highest with a net worth of about $780 million.

I wonder if he still believes money can't buy him love?

Yeah, I figured he'd be up in the stratosphere with Oprah, who I didn't look up cuz I didn't want to deal with scientific notation.

It's startling to me that Trey is worth so vastly more than the surviving GD members, though, with all their gazillion DPs and so on. And they weren't particularly hugely rich during the life of the band, even with all that touring revenue. If you look up Jerry's estate when he died, it was about $9 million. Brent was worth $2 million.

Converted to 2012 money, Jerry was worth about $13 million and Brent would have been worth about $3.5 million.
